Voodoo Extreme reports:

1.78 million copies of "Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2" sold in the U.K., but of those only 53,400 (3%) of them are in the hands of PC gamers!


PC -      3%
XBOX - 57%
PS3 -    40%

Is it the decline of PC gaming industry?

+1

downloading the game right now, @50 %
it should be downloaded about 200.000 - 500.000 times by now.

but still:

1) Even if we take 500.000 of downloads, it's still smaller than PS3 or XBOX.
2) Why would companies continue developing games for PC if it's very unprofitable?

dont know, probebly there is a profit... but if the stopped making games for pc, then its also not very usefull to make videocards, and then its also not very usefull to make mobo's with more pci-e slots for crossfire/SLI and then stores dont have the option to make 'gaming pc's ' since there are no games to play on...

and soo onnn...  evrything is connected  cha_43.gif

i think for about 90% yes...  i cant think of another reason why u would buy a videocard like the 5870 X2 for example. maybe other ppl will buy it for 'hd rendering' or designing programs or what so ever.. but then ur already done with a 40 euro videocard.. 

and the back of my HD4850 box sais: TARGETING the adrenaline addicted minds of the avid GAMERS with jaw dropping performence...   lol

PC Gaming dead? That's not happening in my lifetime.

Look at the amount of awesome PC exlusives for 2010 - that would be enough for 5 years of gaming for me

Well, when I see so many ppl downloading Modern Warfare 2 I can understand why its more popular on PS3 and XBOX. Every download decreases the number of  selt CD's, so Infinity Ward thinks that the most ppl don't like it on pc^^

sorry for the english^^

People wont pay for it on pc because theres no servers for it. Why pay extra to play it online everymonth. May as well download a cracked version.
PS Illegal downloading is huge in the uk, although my 0 day ftp sites r based in sweden.

Yes there are some mistakes here and there in the list, however my point was to show that as a PC gamer I'm not worried about the future of the platform at all... with all the goodies coming up Wink

Only reason there are so many sales more for the consoles is the fact that PC version has no dedicated servers and on every server you play on, the only person that doesn't have lag is the player that is the host... On the console versions(atleast for 360, can't speak for the ps3) there is no lag.

Infinity Ward has already been hacked by a group to enable the feature dedicated servers. Bad part about it is that with that they also did some other stuff... The fact that people who start dedicated servers can adjust allot more things now as well: gravity, infinite bullets, god-mode, no reload for the grenade function of certain weapons, changing the EXP you gain with killing people(can be rised to giant ratings so you only need a few kills so that you've reached the final level) and it's still registered on IW.net, ...


For the list of 2010, I can see All Points Bulletin in there... I applied for the beta a while back and about 2 weeks ago I received a mail that I was picked to play the beta.
